[NF] Netflix Charts Performance on Top ISP Networks.

In the metric below, we’re filtering for titles that have HD streams available, and for devices capable of playing HD streams (which also filters out mobile networks), to highlight what’s achievable in terms of HD performance on the various ISP networks. As you can see, Charter is in the lead for US streams with an impressive 2667 kilobits per second average over the period. Rogers leads in Canada with a whopping 3020 kbps average.
I gotta hand it to Netflix for dragging the dirty truth out into the spotlight.

Right on Netflix!

It has been at least 5 years since I used them, but they are the worst ISP I've ever subscribed to. Perhaps they've gotten better since then, or maybe the lines/people in the area I was in just sucked.

Why does it say Rogers leads in Canada? According to that chart, Shaw gets the highest peak... Should be amended to Rogers leads in EASTERN Canada IMO, as Rogers/Bell are only isp's in the east and Shaw/Telus in the west.

I have 10/2? or 10/3 from charter in STL, MO here. My upload usually never hits it's estimated/promised speeds, but my DL will exceed on some occasions outside peak times. For instance, last night I fired up BF:BC2 on my xbox for the first time in months and had to d/l the 1.6gb vietnam multiplayer update. 15 minutes was all it took.

I don't have netflix though. But I've always been happy with the charter connection. We don't get a lot of downtime either. Maybe once in the past two years for a full day.

Clearwire's tubes must be clogged from people sending too many internets.

And that surprises me. The articles I read about this data pre-release seemed to indicate that Comcast's throughoput and policies was a primary driver for why Netflix wanted to release this. Maybe they just want to ensure that Comcast doesn't start throttling post-NBC merger.

Another surprise to me is that Verizon, despite its FIOS links, is middle of the pack. If I were a Verizon customer with FIOS, I would be a little peeved by this mediocrity.

Clearwire uses Cell towers to distribute internets to customers. I used to do tech support for them. I wouldn't suggest getting clearwire to anyone. Number one and two service call, "I can't get a signal" and "I have horrible ping in everything"
